The footage is extremely disturbing and in no way reflects the ethos or traditions of our School.
The incident occurred on the 26 of January 2017 prior to the start of the School day. The assailants and videographers have been identified and will be dealt with according to our Code of Conduct. The boys in the video were in Grade 10 and Grade 11. The victims will be afforded counselling and our full support.
The School views this in a most serious light and is deeply distressed as to how our School has been depicted.
